how many of you actually look at adding weight to the bar each session? or do you just go to the gym and go failure on what ever exercise you do?
If you start to stall, change the rest periods. You may not realise how long you are waiting between each set. If you have been waiting for say 3 mins, drop down to 90 seconds, you will find it difficult to hit the same rep range and therefore decrease the weight to compensate. You could also superset which would make thing even harder.Gza1 said:my trouble is i always start to heavy and with in 3 weeks i have to deload lol, going to start a 5x5 with big lifts this week and start light and see how i go, ive been hitting the gym for a few weeks with no structured progression just goin failure, it just seems pointless.
all these people who say keep the body guessing mix it up every week, how are you supposed to see progression with weights, thats just my opinion though
This is the best way to do it, as you know exactly what you are aiming for when you go in. Obviously you're not going to beat your previous amount of weights/reps everytime, but it lets you know when you are making progress.GymMad said:Same here :thumbup1:
Keep a journal to keep a log of your workouts / progress
Aim to beat it each week!
